Truck rams pedestrians lower ManhattanAt least two people were killed and multiple people were injured after a mass shooting and vehicular strike incident in New York City at 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, according to NYPD and numerous witnesses. One person was in custody, and it's unclear if police were searching for more suspects.

Police reported over their scanner that a “suspicious person with some kind of device in hand” may still be at large. @NYCScanner reported that multiple police officers were shot at Chambers and Houston Streets. @BuffingActions reported, "multiple people shot Downtown Manhattan near Chambers Street. At a high school West side highway being closed."

There were multiple injuries on a bike path on the West Side, police said on the scanner. Those injuries appeared to be due to a large vehicle hitting victims, though details were still developing.
